I have some frames I want to extract, but on one frame some of the cells in the bottom row had capped drone brood in them. I scraped the drone cells, which left a mushy mess in that bottom row. I opened up the brood nest in the box below….How long will it take for the bees to clean up the scraped up brood cells so I can pull the frames and extract?

It depends, I've seen cases where within a day they clean them and I've seen cases where it was 3-4 days and then I've heard of cases where it took longer, it depends on the girls, some are more hygienic than others.
